Google has unveiled Google Friend Connect to allow websites to add social networking features to their sites.

Google Friend Connect "lets non-technical site owners sprinkle social features throughout their websites, so visitors will easily be able to join with their AOL, Google, OpenID, and Yahoo credentials", said Google.

"You will be able to see, invite, and interact with new friends or, using secure authorisation APIs, with existing friends from social sites on the web such as Facebook, Google Talk, hi5, LinkedIn, orkut, Plaxo and others," the firm said.

Website owners can now sign up to join a waiting list to add the technology to their site.

"We are going to keep things pretty limited at first so we can gather feedback from site owners, developers and users," said Google.

To sign up, website owners can visit Google's website.
